Fire at the Village Perk

We recently posted in praise of a new cafe in the Village of Whitesboro, the Village Perk. And we are very, very sad to say that a week ago Sunday, a fire began in the kitchen there and caused considerable damage to both the kitchen and the restaurant area. As friends of the owners, Tammie and Bob, we know how hard they worked for a year or more to renovate the building and begin a new business. Not only did they offer great coffee and desserts, but they had begun having an open mike every Thursday evening and sometimes on the weekends, plus art exhibits.

This is a loss to their growing clientele. Our thoughts are with them. And our hope is that they can find a way to start over.
